Watch These College Kids React To Daft Punk [Video]

If you’re reading this, you know who Daft Punk are. You know they’re an iconic French duo, considered legends of electronic music, and have been around since the ’90s. You know their names, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, you know their albums, and for damn sure you’ll recognize their classic tunes off the first beat… It’s a bit hard not to sound the slightest bit snobbish when they get brought up, because any fan worth their salt just gets it.

So join me in cringing while watching these college kids react to Daft Punk, not really sure what to make of Homework or Interstella 5555, and then gleefully joining in when they’re finally treated to the Grammy-winning “Get Lucky.” Thankfully, the second half of the clip is dedicated to chronicling duo’s rich and influential history, so there’s no need to seek out these plebes and tell them yourself.

This year there was a fair amount of genre-bending, EDM crossover music that has been produced. EDM has crossed into country music,classical and now Taylor Swift.

This Horrendous EDM Remake Of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” Should Have Never Been Made

The new movie Sing, in which a koala named Buster Moon has one final chance to restore his theater to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition, is out two weeks from today. Considering it’s a modern song and dance animated film aimed at children, you can expect many of today’s top hits to be recreated for the film.

The soundtrack for the film popped up on Spotify today, and we’re going to focus on two tracks: first, Reese Witherspoon & Nick Kroll’s vomit-inducing EDM cover of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”; second, Señor Coconut & His Orchestra’s Latin cover of Daft Punk’s “Around The World.”

Witherspoon & Kroll’s interpretation of the hit Taylor Swift song is sure to be a focal point of the film, especially considering Reese is playing one of the main characters in the film. The song is unbearably pandering to whatever version of pseudo-EDM was in the mind of whoever produced this. We’d tell you to listen below, but honestly, you’re better off not…

Next is the actually creative and, honestly, pretty interesting take on “Around The World” by Señor Coconut & His Orchestra. Replete with bongos and a double bass, this take on the classic gives a fresh interpretation that we never saw coming.

Definitely feel free to listen to this one.
